Family Medicine Residency
My name is Robert Koller. I am originally from Maynard Massachusetts which is a small town about 30 miles from Boston. After finishing high school I moved with my family to Colorado Springs, Colorado. After serving on active duty in the U.S. Army for several years I went on to received my undergraduate degree in Biology and Nursing from the University of Colorado. Before entering medical school I spent a number of years practicing as a R.N. in emergency departments in both Colorado and Iowa.
I attended medical school at Des Moines University College of Osteopathic Medicine, and did my third and fourth year clinical rotations in Mason City. It was during this time that I began to appreciate the breadth of the training that the Mercy North Iowa Family Medicine Residency provides to its resident physicians. As an unopposed program you have ample “hands on” experience and opportunities to develop your patient management skills. The Faculty and attending physicians are very approachable and available, while the residency/clinic nursing and administrative staff members are supportive and friendly.
I am married to my wife Janet and we have a big fat kitty named “Abigail” (who we adopted from the Humane Society of North Iowa). We have grown to love Mason City and northern Iowa and hope to practice full-scope Family Medicine (with OB) in the area after completing residency.
